National Cousins Day is celebrated every year on July 24.
On this day, we honor cousins and the important role they play in our lives as the first and closest friends we have while growing up.
Some cousins can be like our siblings, and this is the perfect day to show your favorite cousins how much you appreciate them.

However, with the rise of social media, the day has gained popularity sharing photos with cousins on July 24 became a thing.
For many people, cousins are like siblings or very close friends.
How to Celebrate National Cousins Day
If you live close to your cousins, try to organize a cousin’s reunion on this day. As it happens during the summer, you can throw a picnic or a barbeque, and get all your cousins together. If you have younger cousins, connect with them by playing games.
It also gives you a chance to learn more about your family and dive deeper into the history if you belong from a huge family.
For people with cousins from every generation, this day holds a lot of significance as it gives them a chance to get together with everyone.
Try to reconnect with cousins who are far away, by sending them a message or giving them a call, and reminisce about the good old days.
